Emoji on Samsung Galaxy S3Emojis are very, very popular among mobile users today. In case you’re unfamiliar, Emojis are those little smiley faces you see when you type a certain combination of symbols together. We’ve been using them for years and, likely, we’ll all be using them for years to come. Unfortunately, some mobile devices don’t come with Emoji support and that can make text bland and not so fun. Thankfully, there’s a method that’s still around today that will help you out on to install emoji on Samsung Galaxy S3.
The very awesome thing about this modification is that it allows for Emojis system wide. So you won’t just see them in Google Talk, Facebook, text messages, etc. You will see them in tweets, web pages, settings, menus, and other applications that normally wouldn’t otherwise have Emoji support. What will you need? A rooted device and a file explorer. We prefer Root Explorer, which you can purchase in the Google Play Store for $3.99. If you don’t feel like paying for Root Explorer, ES File Explorer works fine. However, make sure to go into ES File Explorer’s settings and enable root explorer.
